21st Century Education
“Education with technology is the need of the hour”
The 21st century has brought in new perspective of living. With the advent of technology, youngsters have not only become smart but also have found ways and means to get their work done. The new, booming smarter students are riding these technologies and using them to the fullest. But is it happening in reality? Are the 21st century students using the technological tools to their benefit or has the technology added to their distraction? Of course, like all other things, technology too has its benefits and limitations. Being a student in this generation and coping with all the ongoing things, social media intake or television exposure, at the same time, is not an easy task. So, what is needed? How are things to be looked at?
While I listen to complains, most of the parents and teachers report; my/your son or daughter is exposed to too much television, internet or mobile usage. I agree, these certainly have added to one of the distractions of a 21st century students. Earlier, before the arrival of these tools, things seemed to be plain; one used to visit the library to read and get all the required materials for their academics. The habit of newspaper reading was prevalent. Students considered books to be their best friends. The advent of new technology in a new century has flipped the scenario. We do have all the readable data needed at just a click away or rather a touch away in this era of smart phones. There is certainly a drop in the newspaper reading. This certainly indicates about the drop in reading habits of the new generation. We have moved to visual oriented data more and the new technological tools are providing just what we want.
We don’t condemn a student using a mobile or internet. But, the concern grows when the student uses it for rather non beneficial purposes, like sitting for hours together on ‘Facebook’ and chatting rather than using it for his/her benefits, like studies or improving general knowledge.
Another core issue is that, the education with time has become costly. So the student who studies, soon after finishing education thinks of earning back the money instead of putting good use to the knowledge earned. This is a far more serious issue for both the education provider and the person pursuing education because it will certainly lead to a stagnated use of knowledge instead of it burgeoning.
There is a lot to boast about the 21st century education too. The introduction of technology has revolutionized education, starting from a very primary stage to even the highest of education, like Ph. D’s. No one can keep themselves apart from this wave of technology and this in some manner or the other has influenced everybody; from parents to teachers and from them it's passed on to the students. There is an endless list of how technology has transformed education. If we consider classrooms, a projector has become a necessity on a major scale, computer are must in every schools. Some schools even have electronic boards in the classroom for teaching the concept using innovating ways. And to think on this, it all has happened in a span of not more than 10-12 years.
Technology is adapted by all; the teachers, the parents and they should let the students and their children do the same respectively. Remember, the future is going to be technology driven and we do want our young ones to be not simply using but riding that technology, so that they won’t have a problem in flowing with the stream. It is only a matter of providing proper guidance. Say, if a child is given an assignment and he simply copies it from the internet and submits, will this be beneficial for the child? Of course not! So what’s the remedy?
We believe the remedy is easy. That is, just to guide the student on the path of good knowledge. Instead of just giving him/her assignments they can be told authenticate online resources from where they can gather information. But to do that we need responsible selective individuals too. And this can be done by none other but the second parents, the teachers. There are online libraries, like the American library, the Oxford library, Sage publication library and many more. There are PDFs available too, which can be read on customized gadgets like Kindle or on an average regular smart phone. The technology is evolving and so is the means of education with it.
We need to keep in mind that we are living in a technology driven era, so any form of online material, videos or online guides or Q & A sites will surely help the students. These sites will not only keep them engaged, as they are on internet but will also help them to visit various references at a single click. To sum up with, if technology is used in its proper sense, it would prove an added advantage for all in this 21st century generation.
To satisfy the demand of 21st century students, letstute provides e-school on web absolutely free of cost for the students where students can watch the videos and learn the concept anytime anywhere. Students can post their queries any time to get answers from our experts within a short span. We also help students to complete their home work through e-tutoring. We provide online test for the students to check their strength and weakness.

CAREER ORIENTED EDUCATION
“The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their live”
Robert M Hutchins
It is very important to give direction to whatever you do in your life. Without direction, you would end up at a point cursing your fate. We all have certain goals in our life, for which we are working hard. So in order to achieve that, we need to follow a structure of systematic plans made well in advance. If you understand the importance of pre-planning, you would see a huge difference in your future performances.
For students, a proper pre planned education is must. Now, this is very easy, not a difficult task at all. As students, you do this your whole academic year before you appear for the final term. So, where actually is the problem? It develops as you enter your next higher class and usually tend to forget about the previous class studies. Remember, it is obviously not possible to remember each and everything, but you can easily remember things which you like most.
It becomes important because all those remained study will haunt you when you go for higher studies or even for your jobs. Once you land up at a high position in your career you would understand the importance of your previous studies. You can always ask your elders about it and they would agree to this. So, buckle up and start identifying the area of your interest. The sooner you do the better it will be for you and your career.
You may even feel the pressure of it sometimes; at such times talk to your elders about your plans. They would certainly guide you in proper direction. Remember; always be faithful to yourself in your studies and day to day activities. Proper planning will only help you to achieve your dreams and take you ahead of all in your life. Every career-oriented person will have to have educational qualifications suited for the career of his choice.
A career orientation refers to the direction that an individual takes, career-wise, throughout his or her life. If an individual always chooses or pursues a certain type of job, or a job in a particular field, this can be viewed as his or her orientation.
Always remember we all are intelligent at brain. It’s just that some of us underestimate ourselves. Never underestimate your capabilities, keep reading and writing, and keep researching and gaining knowledge because these are the weapons which will nurture your career and future. For this, we would like to quote one of Albert Einstein’s famous quote and stop,
“Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.”

Are you an Achiever?
It is very important to set proper goals in one’s life. You have to set your goal and try to achieve your goal, no matter what your goal is; getting 100/100 in exams, or getting first rank in the class, school or college or bagging 1st prize in the sports or extracurricular activities, for all of these, require strong determination and hard work. This requires having the spark of an achiever inside you. Being an achiever means being a person who with the skill and efforts can take challenges, whether they are big or small. Every single step towards your goal will make you confident towards your final achievement. Also, if you are determined towards achieving your goal then you will definitely succeed.
The most important virtue which you are lacking is self confidence; the confidence in yourself. You need to know that to achieve anything, the first and the foremost important quality is to build or develop your self confidence. If that is in right proportion then rest of your preparation will certainly consume less time. Here are some vital steps which will definitely improve your self confidence and will help you to achieve your desired goal.
Always strive towards hard work because it is the key to success. Remember that there are no shortcuts of achieving anything until you give your 100% to it. Plan before you start, bring that plan into action and keep working on it until and unless you achieve that goal of yours. So, remember always be an achiever, be on your toes, be determined towards your goal and grab any opportunity which comes through your way. Once you achieve something you desire for, you yourself will cherish your achievement; you will stand apart from the rest. Always remember, to achieve your desired goal you need to work hard and keep trying until you succeed in your task; ‘no pain no gain’. Always be an achiever and remember this great inspirational quote by Jonathan Sacks,
“No great achiever – even those who made it seem easy – ever succeeded without hard work.”
You have desire to excel….want to be an achiever …..

Being brave is often misunderstood by most of us. Brave doesn’t mean that you need to stand up against anything randomly without being decisive. But being brave does mean standing for yourself, your right decisions, your achievements, your goals and the most important, standing for what you believe is right. Brave means to strongly stand in favour of the decisions which you stand for, of course the path won’t be easy, but being brave will not only help you to cross those hurdles but will also let you achieve your dreams.
Remember whatever you plan for, in actuality there’s always some unexpected surprises, good or worse – easy or difficult, waiting for you. Under such circumstances, only those who gather all their strength and show their braveness to stand can only go beyond the obstacles and hurdles and can reap the pleasure from the benefits of their hard work done. The point where you are in cognitive minds about your goal is very vital because that is the moment when you need to assemble all your potential, show your bravery and go for that extra mile which lies straight ahead of you.
Being brave helps us to face up to anxiety and recognize it as a normal stage in learning something new. To grow and develop to our full potential, we need to step outside the realm of our ‘normal’ behaviour and do something that stretches our limitations, make wider our knowledge, and challenges us to explore and discover new frontiers.
Here is a great motivational quote by the well known literature personality Ralph Waldo Emerson and he says,
“A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer.”
You surely must have heard the story of the ant and the elephant in your primary class. At first, how the gigantic elephant destroys that ant’s herd but how that single ant shows courage, fights back, climbs into the trunk of the elephant and makes the elephant to bend on his knees. What does this simple story tells you all? Very valiantly it tells; no matter how humongous the obstacle is with the weapon of courage on your side you can defeat any obstacle and win.
There are times when you go through rough phases; nothing goes through your way and what you end up doing most of the times is complaining about yourself or cursing your fate. But you seriously need to stop doing that to yourself you cannot let that happen every time to you. Rather use that phase in progressive manner. Calmly listen to all the criticism made on you, good or bad, use them as an aide, then collect and gather all the energy you want from it. Be patient but at the same time be on your toes too and when the opportunity arrives strike it with all the courage you gathered during your rough time. You will be surprised to see the results yourself. You will be amazed to know the wonders you can do, which was till now a hidden potential in you.
‘Where there is a will there is a way’.
So keep in mind, tough time comes in everyone’s life but only those succeed who are ready to stand up to those problems, show courage and fight those challenges.
The structure of our education system is in a state of transform. Online education is becoming popular, as well as specifically online educational institutions, offer Internet-based sessions. Furthermore, online or web based programs with a limited-cost serve the same purpose. While the design of traditional schools, colleges, universities or educational institutions isn't likely to vanish, learners believe school or college is moving towards web based programs. The results indicate that the School of the Future is thought to be accessible, versatile, impressive, low-cost and job-focused. While higher education isn't there yet, technological innovation and management seem to be resting the foundation. At best, the current thinking about school reform gives only a symbol nod to the unmatched access and connectedness that the Online symbolizes. Most instructors or educators are using online content while teaching. Even those who call for instructors or teachers integrate technology innovation into their daily practice think about such changes as step-by-step rather than major.Even those who call for teachers to integrate technology into their daily practice imagine such reforms as incremental rather than transformative.
Making education accessible at low-cost
The majority of students believed that universities or educational institutes will put forth an effort to incorporate online features that make learning more accessible. While not all universities or institutes currently offer such options, some are headed in the direction of greater accessibility.
Flexibility in education
The study exposed that students basically agree that schools, colleges or institutes will provide online courses that follow no set schedule. This means students can view class content any time anywhere, or complete exams from home whenever they wish. While in-person classes may not yet have this kind of flexibility, many online courses do. For instance, students of web-based classes can take online examinations rather than taking the test in a classroom.
Focusing education on careers
Ideally, school or college prepares students for their careers. Most of students felt that in the future, schools will make job preparation the focus of higher education. They also believe that courses will be customized by institution leaders to ensure students get the knowledge they need for their careers.
So you should have a futuristic vision for further education.
We need to be futurist. We are not marching slowly into the future; we are speeding toward it, go-ahead by the exponential rate of change.
Enthusiasm is definitely necessary if you ever want to accomplish anything of value. You need a larger-than-life entertainment in whatever it is that you are doing for it to be effective. You can produce tremendous enthusiasm within your way of lifestyle; you generally have to follow the following guidelines:
Be Warm & Passionate
You have to have a wish or passion towards what you are doing if you want to build enthusiasm for it. You need to be excited about it as you wake up in the morning till you go to bed at night. This enthusiasm will keep your interest admirable, even during challenging places, which we all go through. Basically, enjoy what you want to do and enthusiasm will pursue.
As we go through the daily beat, it is very easy to neglect about all the little aspects that make our way of lifestyle easier and comfortable. Keep in thoughts all the outstanding things that you have going on in your way of lifestyle and appreciate being who you are these days. This is an awesome strategy to build extremely effective enthusiasm in your way of lifestyle.
Enthusiasm cannot withstand in a destructive environment. If you always have negativity, you can find your enthusiasm go away very quickly. You need to be positive thinker. Look on the bright aspects of everything you do. Take away valuable lessons when the situations are not so good and you can find yourself engrossed by great enthusiasm that will help you to reach towards your goal.
Be Creative & Innovative
We all are creative in our own way. Enthusiasm generates creativity and creativity triggers interest. Always look for an easier route, and always think outside the box. Be creative and innovative and notice your enthusiasm will improve automatically.
The more patience you have, the more powerful your enthusiasm will be. After all, what we want is interest that carries on a life-time, so comprehend to have patience in your time and effort.
Learn new things & grow:
Understand that way of lifestyle is all about improving yourself and that you are in an ongoing situation of improvement. Knowing that you are, each and every day, getting better and better is an effective way to develop enthusiasm. Always evolve, and never look back.
How to learn effectively?
Learners who don't perform well in exam are often labeled as gradual or inattentive. If you are not doing well in school, or are having complications, then don't neglect yourself as silly, or valueless - it may be a variety of simple aspects that are showing potential away from your studying.
Make aspects more interesting for you and you will begin studying more efficiently. Easy aspects, like studying to pay interest, getting realizes and being more organized can improve your studying potential more than you'd ever think about.
Figure out which studying styles perform best for you:
The basic principles are studying by seeing, doing, and paying interest to. You should figure out which learning style is suitable for you.
Rid yourself of interruptions while studying:
Cellular phones, music, and your chatty affiliate affect you while studying. Sit in an appropriate place for study. Establish outstanding relationships with your teachers. If you hate your teachers, then you will have a lot of issues studying. Be respectful and show respect, and put in some effort, and your teachers will keep a choice for you that will create classes more pleasant.
Set achievable goals and motivate yourself to achieve:
Be Genuine, and Life will be Fantastic…
Life is beautiful, if we live our lives on the superficial level, life becomes so dry and boring. However, when we attach with each other from our heart, then there is some genuineness. And that genuineness makes life more gorgeous and authentic.
When someone is genuine, that person seems to be at peace, exhibit a high level of energy and ever ready to smile. He or she is not trying to impress anyone else.
When you are happy, when your heart is pure and clear, and you have no negative approach towards anybody, then you grow the power to mend and bless others. When we find harmony within ourselves, we spread out peace and happiness. If you take a little more time, we can go deep into knowledge. And when there is knowledge, nothing can take away your happiness.
How to be Genuine?
Decide what it means to be "genuine." We are all unique individuals, but few people have absolute confrontation to the credible influence of advertisers, the media, and peer pressure to obey the rules. Be genuine and do whatever is right according to you.
Spend some time alone and think who you really are. Spend time with those who motivates you.
Think about your own family history and culture. We may not always like where we come from, but there is no escaping the influence our history has on who and what we are.
Always be honest. It's easy to think we're honest and sincere but in order to work diplomatically and appropriately with others, it seems like we've started compete in our day to day interactions. Obviously to be genuine you have to be honest.
Be authentic and smile when the smile is not artificial. Give genuine respects. Be aware that not everyone appreciates genuineness so politely decline offers to go outside your comfort zone, especially in areas which compromise your truthfulness.
Be Honest and lead a decent life…
Honest people are respected and trusted upon because they are known to stand by their truth. Without honesty, the world would be a awful and gloomy place to live in. No one likes dishonesty. But, unfortunately, being untruthful with others and ourselves is sometimes easier than telling the truth. Learning to be truthful and eliminating the purpose for falsehood can help to clean up your sense of right and wrong.
How to be Honest?
Be Honest with Yourself: Be honest and everything will turn out well for you, and you will come to realize that truly, Honesty is the Best Policy.
Set some time aside for yourself & Introspect: Allot some time to think and reflect on the task you have set for yourself. Get up early, or find a quiet space where you can sit and think. List the answers of few questions like what is your life all about and its purpose? What have you accomplished, why did you do it? What would you like to accomplish?
Make "SWOT" diagram: Find the strength and weakness and learn to conquer your weakness.
Ask associates or relatives or friends whom you trust how they see you: An honest judgment by somebody outside can help you to know if your personal evaluation of yourself is logical.
Be ready to change your life style: Tell yourself, it's my life, and if I want to be cheerful, hale and hearty, I alone must decide what stays and what goes. Tell yourself the truth, even if the truth is shocking. Although sometimes it's hard to self analyze, admitting to yourself that you are envious of someone is better than trying to deny it. The truth may make you depressed at first, but afterward it will be beneficial for you. Set a small goal, take actions and accomplish your with honesty.
Be Honest With Others:
Honesty and integrity pave the way for better relationship. Figure out why you lie and who you lie to. Lies to make ourselves look better might include exaggerations, trappings, to make ourselves feel better about our inadequacies.
When you're unhappy about something, it's much easier to fill it in with lies than tell the truth. People who constantly lie not only lose their friends but their reputation since no one likes associating with dishonest characters.
Honesty is the foundation of any well-working association. Whether it is with parents, friends, or relatives, honesty is important. No relationship can be successful without trust, which is gained from being honest.
Let your truthfulness astonish people, not your exaggeration or lie. Be honest and the whole thing will turn out healthy for you, and you will believe that truly, “Honesty is the Best Policy” for better living.
Be Innovative & bring innovation in your lifestyle…
We should use the creative minds – ideas, imagination and innovation – even in the lack of external stress. Appeal for more creativity and innovation in education comes from a global emergency and the urgent need for change. Creativity has always been an admired personal characteristic but now it is becoming an important objective also in lifelong learning. Without being creative and innovative you will become trapped in a preset life routine and you might never be able to crack your problems since you will always be trying the same method that doesn’t work.
How to be innovative?
Here the steps you need to perform in order to become innovative:
Transform your schedule and think beyond:
We have noticed that preset routine is great creativity eradicator. In order to become innovative you need not to stick to the same routine each day. Modify your daily routine as per requirement; try to carry out the same activities in a diverse way. For innovation to accomplish something, we should think beyond and try to perform your day to day task in creative and innovative way.
Try to be creative and innovative thinker: If you want to be creative and innovative you should spend some time for creative and innovative thinking where you are not bound by any regulations.
Try to conquer fear of failure: In order to become more creative and innovative you need to keep trying though sometimes you may not be succeed but it will help you to reduce fear of failure. Sometimes if you observe other people, you can get inspiration of being innovate and creative. Take risks, make mistakes but try to do things differently.
Be open for learning new things: Be inquirer, you will start learning new things automatically. If you want to be innovative, then you will have to be open-minded as much as possible.
Be cooperative and collaborative: Innovation requires more than one ideas at a times; if we work together then it is easy to gather more creative and innovative ideas. When you find somebody inspiring, you can learn how to be innovative by being with them. Be straightforward in your compliments, questions and desires. You will realize that it opens up a lot of options in the path towards creativity and innovation.
So, be open for learning new things, be a creative thinker and bring innovation in your lifestyle.

Now, there are so many types of scholarships, it helps to stay updated on the types, time, ranges, amount and places to find them. Some high schools give away scholarships prior to attending college. Some scholarships are merit-based, others are need based, interest based, cultural based and so on…..
The best way to start looking for scholarships is to do your analysis or research. Every college and university will have a dowry with various scholarships. Usually they will be listed on the schools website; however, you can always inquire as to their prevalence. When you learn about them.
Here are some types of scholarships:
These scholarships are among the most common ones and are usually awarded by private organizations as well as by public institutions or directly from the university where you are going to study. Most scholarship holders of merit-based scholarships are chosen by considering the academic performance as well as extracurricular activities like volunteer commitment, work experience or other experiences. However, there are also special fellowships that focus less on the academic but for example more on artistic, athletic or musical abilities. Many merit-based scholarships are awarded without regard for financial need.
Need based scholarships: Depending on your personal and your families financial situation, you might qualify for a need-based scholarship. They are designed to fund the less-fortunate students in their academic pursuits. Scholarship committees look at various reasons for this hardship: Parents' income, number of siblings in school simultaneously, expenses, cost of living, etc.
Athletic Scholarships: Scholarships are popularly given to star athletes by universities to recruit them for the athletic teams. Many athletes complete their education free of charge, but also pay the price of overworked team sports. Usually full-scholarship athletes are recruited by "scouts" while in high school. You don't usually pursue this type of scholarship; it is given to you.
School-Based Individual Scholarships: Every school offers specific scholarships relevant to specifics from the university: donors, individual name scholarships, personal scholarships, and so on. Sometimes you have to apply directly to the scholarship, and other times, just by being accepted, you are placed in the bowl for possible scholarship awards.
Career-specific: These are scholarships a college or university awards to students who plan to pursue a specific field of study. Often, the most generous awards to students who pursue careers in high-need areas such as education or nursing. Many schools in the United States give future nurses full scholarships to enter the field, especially if the student intends to work in a high-need community.
Many people look at scholarships as a whole and think that they sometimes cover everything. If you are lucky enough to receive a full scholarship, then yes, they cover living, books, and tuition. However, many scholarships are partial, meaning they may cover simply living, simply books, or part of the tuition. If you are awarded any type of scholarship, take it and run! They are prized, wonderful gifts, and you should feel honored to receive one. While several scholarships are school based, others are based on almost every other personal element that can exists. Several websites and books are designed purely for the existence of finding scholarships.
College-specific: College-specific scholarships are offered by individual colleges and universities to highly qualified applicants. These scholarships, given on the basis of academic and personal achievement, usually result in either a full-ride to the college, or for a reduced rate of tuition.

How to Become a Life Long Learner?
“Commit yourself to lifelong learning. The most valuable asset you’ll ever have is your mind and what you put into it.
- Brian TRacy
For the initial twenty-two years or somewhere in the vicinity of our lives, our fundamental "employment" is learning. The main part of our time is used in classrooms gaining new information. And later on, once we graduate, we feel like the training period of our lives is carried out and now is the ideal time to go out into the world.
Have you ever considered how odd that thought is? That just a quarter of our lives ought to be dedicated to learning and then we ought to just rest on our shrubs for the staying 75% of it?
Why become a Life Long Learner?
Our entire life is an Education — we are 'regularly adapting,' each snippet of time, all around, under all circumstances something is consistently added to the load of our past accomplishments. Brain is dependably at work when once its operations start. All men and women are learners, whatever their occupation is, in the castle, in the cabin, in the recreation center, and in the field. These are the laws stamped upon Humanity.
You will win more
Fifty or sixty years back, you could complete college and you'd have all the instruction you required for whatever is left of your profession. You don't have that extravagance in today's employment market. Aptitudes that were forefront five years prior are likely out of date, and the occupations that we will perform in the following decade or two presumably don't even exist yet. On the off chance that you need to stay aggressive in today's employment business sector and possibly win more cash, you have to turn into a self-teacher. You will be more interesting and charismatic.
You'll be a superior pioneer
Having the capacity to unite with others doesn't simply make you additionally fascinating. At the same time it makes you more persuasive.
